|Since the program ended, I have had a lot more time on the farm, working alongside Christopher, the Farm Manager. We have spent the majority of our time this fall cleaning the farm up, planting and taking care of veggies in the hoop house, developing a larger compost system, and we have even prepped a new growing area near the front of the Growing Hope House.
Thanks to the generous support from the Glacier Hills Legacy Fund from the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, I am also working to build 40 raised garden beds at Towne Center, a senior living apartment complex in Ypsilanti. Thank you to all the volunteers who lend a hand to make these things possible.
